FURNISHINGS

Walker vs. Strut

Update: Ah-ha! Blu Dot made this table for Crate&Barrel, hence the striking resemblance. See John’s comment below.

We’re all familiar with the occasional copy cat, and it’s hard to complain when the copier comes up with something so similar at a lesser price point. Sure, there’s the intellectual property argument, but as long as the item is different enough, there’s no real harm done, right? (Right?)

DLM Side Table

The DLM (aka Don’t Leave Me) Side Table has a handle at the top so you can easily move it from place to place. Outside or in, just think how nice it would be for extra drinks and appetizers near the sofa or patio.

Made from lightweight steel with a sturdy tripod base.
Powder-coated finish is suitable for indoor as well as outdoor use.

3styletable

Maybe this table won’t win first place in a beauty contest, but it sure will beat the pants off others in a triathlon. It can convert from dining table to coffee table to desk, without tools or finicky extra hardware. And it packs flat for easy storage and transport. See what I mean? It’s multifunctional, and in any tiny apartment space that wins hands down.

Silhouette Bench

Okay, if you just glance at this bench quickly, it might appear a tad overly antique-ish, yet it has some modern touches, such as the high gloss lacquer and the super flat seat. Now, at £525, it’s not really at a bargain-basement price, but if you put it side by side with the New Antiques Arm Chair for £1,495.00 by Marcel Wanders (see below), it seems like one hell of a deal. There’s also a Silhouette Chair (£250) if you are interested, though it seems to be out of stock at the moment.

Endy Stool

Love, love, love this stool. The color coded ends of timber are emphasized in the design of this stool, thereby “preserving a hint of the origins of the wood” and giving us an altogether colorful little seating option.

Shipping seems to run around $29.00, fyi.

Oak, ash, maple, mahogany, cherry.
H: 40cm, Ø: 32cm.

Steel Pipe Chair

No doubt you’re somewhat familiar with MUJI’s range of office furniture (and if you aren’t, it would do you well to take a gander), but you might be interested to know that the Steel Pipe Chair is on sale now from $630 to $479… not too bad for a possible future classic. The chair’s design is based on the original Bauhaus design and made in Germany by Thonet GmbH.

Latex Roll Pouf

Do you want to guess what product is made from this latex, thereby leaving tons of it for upcycling into a pouf? Is it construction fencing? Rubber bouncy balls? Waste from the production of shoe insoles? Right you are, shoe insoles it is. Angela Mensi, Cristina Merlo and Ingrid Taro are three designers making objects and furniture out of waste materials, and based on this under-$100 colorful pouf, I’d say they’re starting out right.

Day Bed One

I did a little overview of Another Country back in November, but this daybed is worth a highlight on its own. You can buy it with or without the mattress and bolsters, and it should be noted that without the mattress it could double as a generous coffee table. With the buttoned mattress, it’s a lovely spot for a nap or an extra overnight guest (it’s the size of a standard single bed).

To see more, visit Another Country.

Oblique and Check Shelf

Whoa, this Oblique Shelf by BuiltIN studio qualifies as a top notch eye catcher for any room. The angles are impressive to be sure (see the side view) and it’ll hold your various possessions with some serious style. Each shelf is hand-made of solid American hardwoods and are finished with a low VOC polyurethane.

DIY Cardboard Kid’s Chair

For the budding builder or designer, this cardboard DIY chair would be a fun afternoon project. With a little bit of time and elbow grease, recycled paper parts can be assembled into a chair sturdy enough to take on 132 lbs (though I doubt many 5 to 6 year olds weigh that much). Decorate and paint once assembled.

From MUJI, of course.

Shift Table by Toby Winteringham

It’s rare that we post bespoke furniture, but occasionally a piece is outstanding enough to deserve a mention. This table is handmade by Toby Winteringham and displays excellent marquetry in dyed veneers and sycamore.
